5 Disappointing Products

Batiste Dry Conditioner:
I liked the concept of this being a dry spray, like the dry shampoos (which I find are ok). I will use this up over time, but it just doesn't really feel like it nourishes or conditions my hair very well.



Benefit Hoola Bronzer: 
I bought this because it is known to be a matte bronzer that can work for pale people. I've not got on with this very well. It may work better on people with light-medium complexions because I find it too stark and obvious. The Body Shop's Honey Bronzer in the lightest shade is cheaper and more subtle. 

No. 7 Protect and Perfect Beauty Serum:
I have used most of this, but since using other products by Kiehls and ESPA this is just not cutting it. I hate to imply that higher end products are the only ones that work, because that isn't always the case, but this is just a mediocre serum that feels nice enough on the skin, but didn't really make any noticeable difference.

This Works Perfect Skin Defense SPF30:
This tinted sunscreen sounds like a dream come true, but it was not a nice product to use. The colour blends in with any skintone, but leaves next to no coverage or colour. It has a strong lavender scent which is quite off-putting, and leaves a tacky residue to the skin. No thank you!

MUA Undress Me Too Eyeshadow Palette:
I bought this cheap palette as it was said to be very similar to the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. I really wanted to like it, but the quality just isn't there. If I was thirteen and hadn't become accustomed to different brands, that'd be fine, but the colours just don't match up to Mac or Urban Decay by any stretch of the imagination. The pigmentation is mediocre and the colours do not translate nicely on the lids. The frostiness of texture looks very old-fashioned to me! 

Do you love or loathe any of these products?
